It helps Undertaker and HBK having that WWE/F engine behind you your whole career (at least with Undertaker AS Undertaker, he was in WCW before that as a nobody) Remember Bret would not have left WWF if Vince didn't come to him and say "we can't afford you" and he told Bret to go to WCW, then he screwed him on the way out ending any chance for a return until it was way too late in 2010. Then the Owen accident happened so bridge burned. WCW booked him poorly and Goldberg kicked him in the head and ended his career. So he's a little bit of victim of circumstance. I think if he had stayed in WWF and got to face Rock, Angle, Jericho maybe even Brock and Cena if he stayed healthy and wrestled into his 40's he would have been a bigger star than he is instead he's remembered as being the guy in WWF when they were struggling. I'm not saying he deserves 0% blame for that, but WWF was just horrible from 93-96 and remember Undertaker and HBK were both there too, and none of the 3 could save it because overall it was horrible.
